Well, I am kind of relieved to say that the hematologist I have gone to see has done his extra blood work, and when I had last spoken to him a month go -he had said he thought I could come off Coumadin-then he read the newest standards of care in a journal called "Chest" and has now told me that I need to be on anticoagulants for life. I am relieved because I was afraid to be without them. He said that if I were 80 he would take me off them because the risk of bleeding outways the risk of clotting at that age, but since I am "young"(42)-that made me laugh, that I am more at risk for clotting than bleeding. All the other things he checked for were negative. So no new surprizes -glad I didn't have to make the decision to go off or not myself -it has been made for me. I hope everyone is ready for a nice Labor Day weekend. Blessings, Teri
